Extreme Citizen Science (ExCiteS)


Mobile Gaming Citizen Science Biodiversity and Conservation

Proposed Research Framework

The project in conjunction with ZSL is about novel combination of knowledge domains to improve outreach in ecology. It aims at the design of innovation on citizen science methodologies and environmental monitoring approaches to effectively contribute to biodiversity conservation. Tools will be evaluated or developed with the support of IT specialists to integrate different information sources and to elicit evaluations. Currently at a conceptual stage. A first overarching structure of the interconnected knowledge domains is represented in the research image posted. The expected outcome is a methodology/tool to elicit from diverse information sources an evaluation of immaterial goods related to the natural environment.
